AbstractQuantum mechanics on the moduli space of N supersymmetric Reissner-Nordstrom black holes is shown to admit 4 supersymmetries using an unconventional supermultiplet which contains 3N bosons and 4N fermions. A near-horizon limit is found in which the quantum mechanics of widely separated black holes decouples from that of strongly-interacting, near-coincident black holes. This near-horizon theory is shown to have an enhanced D(2, 1;0) superconformal symmetry. The bosonic symmetries are SL(2,R) conformal symmetry and SU(2) x SU(2) R-symmetry arising from spatial rotations and the R-symmetry of N = 2 supergravity.
